Recently, Azure MFA on-premises server 8.x version was released, in this version we have a very important improvement as below, and most likely we may receive some cases from our customers the design totally changed which may surprise our customers J J, find below notes from my lab:
“Installation of the mobile app web service is not necessary for v8.0 or higher. Complete only the steps under Configure the mobile app”
I tried this in my lab as no additional info in the documents and below are my observations:
- The mobile App service will be enabled by default and it’s managed by our back-end, no any additional configurations are required, anyone tried to configure the Mobile APP service in previous version know what a headache that we had J
- In the MFA console, there is no option to configure the mobile APP URL as again it’s configured and managed in our backend automatically:
3. In MFA console, if you try manually to generate the code for mobile APP, it will generate a public URL for our back-end and this is why we said it’s managed by MS in the new versions of MFA:
4. If the customer installed the user portal, then by default the user can generate and scan the QR code, and below show the public URL for our back-end also (no additional configurations required):
